      Samsung needs a new Marketing Team they never promote actual cool useful features instead they only present one singular new feature for over an hour. Also they shouldn’t adapt to Apple every time they remove a feature since it hurts their uniqueness image. Also they shouldn’t use their Exynos Chips anymore they’re so out of date compared to the Snapdragon Chips.

        I’ve probably bought my last Samsung phone (Note10+). They lost me when they started copying Apple. No headphone jack, IR, etc. Not a marketing issue for me, just a features issue.

          Yeah they definitely lost me as well for a long time now.

          Reasons:

          • Shit Marketing/Shitty Launch Events
          • Copying Apple (Removing headphone jack, IR scanner, removable backcovers etc.)
          • No real innovation other than the Fold/Flip Series anymore (Still no real fast charging but charging an insane money for their devices etc.)
          • Putting the Exynos chip even in their flagships (Snapdragon is way better than the Exynos Chips it’s basically a scam if they sell the same model with a way worse chip that costs the same)
          • Putting intrusive ads on the set-up screen, making it easy for service providers to install random apps, Always trying to get you to use their apps (this not only happens on the A-Series instead also on the Flagships)
          • Producing the A-Series that the iSheeps will most of the time refer to when comparing the newest iPhone to Android (The A-Series phones are the most shitty phones you can ever use)
          • That they merged the Note-Series into the S-Series
          • More and more Bloatware installed right out of the box
          • Their new Galaxy AI (which they didn’t call Galaxy Brain) runs mostly not even on device and they’ll charge you for it in 2025 when they instead just could have said “We’ll let you use the On-Device AI Features for free but the Online Features will cost 4.99€/month/We’ll let you use the On-Device AI Features for free but the Online Features will only be free for 2 weeks after you bought the S24 Ultra from our Website after that time period you need to pay 4.99€/month for the online features” or they could’ve waited a bit longer to develop the AI for fully On-Device use and everyone would’ve been happy. Also that they advertised it as it would be an S24 Ultra exclusive is insane since not only the S24 Ultra gets it.

          For anybody who comes across this buy phones by the following companies instead of a Samsung:

          • Sony
          • Google Pixel
          • Nothing
          • Motorola

            i have an A-series, and have repaired many of then.

            they definetly push their services hard on those, and on devices that can barely run them well.

            OnePlus is also popular as an almost vanilla Android phone. My old phone was a Motorola, and that was absolutely amazing on the OS, Zero bloat or crap of any kind. Only an app for configuring Motorola specific features.
